Weather Channel Scandal: Hillary Andrews wins against Bob Stokes

Weather Channel Scandal: Hillary Andrews wins against Bob Stokes The sexual harassment scandal which rocked the Weather Channel is coming to an end, after Hillary Andrews won her lawsuit against the channel and Bob Stokes. The 38-year-old former anchor, who left the company and now works for CNN, filed the lawsuit against the Weather Channel alleging sexual harassment by co-anchor Bob Stokes. The details of the lawsuit remain closed to public eye, but leaked court documents reveal that her co-anchor bombarded her with sexually suggestive comments including the now (in)famous "Will you lick my swizzle stick?" Reports claim that in the lawsuit Hillary Andrews claims Bob Stoke also followed her to the women dressing room and making crude sexual remarks when they were alone. Andrews said when she complained to bosses at the Weather Channel she was reassigned to an overnight shift. She claimed Bob Stokes kept his job because he was popular with viewers and scored high ratings. Bob Stokes was eventually fired in February after an employment tribunal ruled that Hillary Andrews had been subject to "severe and pervasive" sexual harassment.

 The court ruling in the Weather Channel sexual harassment scandal was 17-page long, but the channel is trying to keep the ruling private. Meanwhile Hillary Andrews want the sex scandal court ruling to be made public so she can sue Stokes for personal damages. At this time it remains unknown what Andrews won with the lawsuit. Who would have thought the Weather Channel could be a part of a sex scandal...
